is that at what -- who knew in the paper and when did they know it? rebecca brooks, who used to be editor of news of the world, says she didn't know anything about it. this kind of, you know, is somewhat questionable. but there's a political implication to all of this, which makes it even more complicated and in a way more scandalous. brooks is a great friend of the camera. the last editor of the news of the world before brooks became prime minister camera's spokesman. he then resigned under mysterious circumstances. as all this is coming out, seems perhaps the circumstances may not be so mysterious. so the question of who knows and who knew then is kind of key to the whole thing. however, my feeling is that somehow it won't end up being as revealing as we all thought, because too many political implications here. >> i wish we had 10 more minutes to speak with you. unfortunately, our time is fleeting. it is now out of time. but i appreciate you coming in. this is not at all dead. so hopefully we'll see you again. >> sure. >> tony, over to you. >>> thank you, much. 8:23now. the military's don't as
